Gartside Street Car Park (behind Delph Methodist Church)

As you are no doubt aware, Delph Methodist Church was forced to close the car park behind its buildings, on the advice of both its insurance company and its solicitor, because of its poor state of repair and the risk of personal injury. It is hoped that it will soon be refurbished for village use, particularly for the new Clinic. Click on this link for more information.

Delph Doctors' Surgery

The new Surgery on Gartside Street is reported to be ready but awaiting BT to connect the telephone/data lines before opening. There was a big "splash" in the Oldham, Chronicle dated 16th October blaming BT for the delay and attempting to stir them into action. The original completion date was stated to be January 2015 !!
